bottle. Pours lighter brownish-red, minimal head. Raisins, yeast, banana, butterscotch, light smoke. Lightly bubbly and buttery mouthfeel. Very different than the other trappist quads, but still very nice.

A bit of meh here. It's good -- except way too much smokiness. As if a bit of Liquid Smoke was added during the brewing!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle from LCBO. Toronto, Ontario. Poura a cloudy brownish colour with a thin layer of off-white head which disapates quickly. Very minimal lacing.
It has a sweet malty, dark fruit aroma. It’s a sweet tasting quad which hides the alcohol well. (10%) It has notes of brown sugar, plums, fig, raisins and well balanced midly bitter finish. It has the right amount of carbonation, medium body, sweet palate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle, pours a clear dark red brown with a bubbly off white head. Aroma is dark fruit, berries, marzipan, a bit of dark chocolate, rich and full bodied, the finish is short with a well balanced bitter finish. As it warms this beer tastes better and becomes more complex. A classic, excellent quad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber with white, big head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, plums, a bit of honey. Maybe a bit of bubble gum, not certain about though. Solid body with high carbonation. Alcohol is potent and gives a great warming sensation. Good, rich beer, although not really in my taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl in a La Trappe glass. Pours a quite bright orange colour with a white head. Powerful aroma of honeyed fruits (particularly orange) and alcohol. Flavour is dominated by sweetness and fruits - I much prefer an ABT style Quad. Very similar in style and execution to Gulden Draak 9000 although this being the original that is probably more of a testament to the quality of the La Trappe beer than coincidence. The alcohol is overwhelming and to me seems unnecessarily boozy.

Pours a murky chestnut with a creamy white head. Quite a lot of alcohol on the nose. Taste is yeasty.
